Trulli rubbishes Lotus exit rumours

Jarno Trulli has rubbished suggestions that his future at the Lotus Racing team is in doubt, and he is certain he will be with the outfit in 2011.
Speculation in Brazil has suggested Hispania's Bruno Senna was set to replace Trulli at Lotus next season, and that the Italian was looking for a deal to continue racing in the NASCAR series.
The veteran Italian, however, says all the rumours have been simply made up.
"It seems all invented to me, as are the rumours that I would go racing in NASCAR," Trulli was quoted as saying by Autosprint magazine.
"The truth is that before coming to Brazil I went to Miami and met [Juan Pablo] Montoya to exchange the Audemars Piguet watches that bear our names.
"I'm calm about the future, as I've already been involved by [Mike] Gascoyne in the 2011 project."
Trulli's manager Lucio Cavuto also hit out at Senna's management.
"Those are just rumours bandied about by Senna, who as far as I know has even had trouble respecting the financial obligations he took with Hispania this year," he said.
